Big Rock tournament is sued over disqualification
Citation seeks to overturn decision that cost it $912,000

The tournament's board of directors then went to court in Carteret County, seeking a judgment to confirm the disqualification of the 883-pound blue marlin the Citation brought in June 14. The board wants to award the money to the boat Carnivore as the 2010 winner.
